This is Deep. Not at all in the lyrical way, but in the way it sounds and feels. The way the song develops into an isolated rounded synth around 0:33 with only the sound of crisp claps in the background…gold. The entrance of the electric guitar at 2:18 w/ the sound of some birds and chipmunks and whatever else lives in the forest…gold. The purity of it kills me. Detox w this – thanks Kartell

 

So the duo that make up the ever-powerful ODESZA have this little big thing called Foreign Family Collective, which is basically a collective album/project made up of artists that ODESZA has sponsored in a way by having them collaborate on their project with their respective visual/musical inputs .  They’ve already boasted huge tracks under this platform such as “Wasted On You” by Louis Futon ft. Rozes, and “Aftergold” by Big Wild ft. Tove Styrke, and now they have another to add to their growing collection by rising electronic artist Chet Porter. I think the Cutler’s vocals are the real pull on this track, even though the chill, ethereal vibes that ride straight through the drop are probably what make you stay. Ride this wave to the end of summer ~~

I just love this song. Meet Alex Mali, the 21-year-old Brooklynite whose putting her own foot into R&B Fusion. What I love about her is the absolute rawness of the music she produces, and how genuine and real she sounds as she tells her story. She sings raps soulfully and passionately about her family, her future, and her aspirations, while wrapping all those words up in a beautifully produced medley of electronic sounds and R&B vibes. PHENOM is Mali’s single off her upcoming EP, so look out for more from this queen.

 

I’m pretty picky with EDM tracks- I love electronic music, but I tend to lean towards slower electronic music that produces itself as an eclectic blend of hip-hop, disco, and/or indie influence. However, once in a while, a good EDM track bares its head, and theres nothing like a good EDM track to get you in the mood for a dope night out. Forever topped hypemachine charts for 2 weeks straight, and for pretty good reason. Enjoy!
